Finland skin cancer camera raises hopes of medical breakthrough

The device uses ultra-precise, hyperspectral imaging, a technique previously used in mining and for crime scene investigations.

Developed by scientists in Finland, the device is undergoing clinical trials at hospitals nationwide and researchers say the initial results are promising.
